Description Suggest change

This northeast facing rock on a hillside above the Desert Queen Wash is easily identified by the near vertical gully that splits the main formation in half. 

  • Vector (5.11c) is the must do classic here.

Getting There Suggest change

One approach to Vector Rock is to hike north from the Split Rock parking area towards the Desert Queen Wash. 

Once the Bond Boulders have been reached it is best to remain above the wash that drains into the Desert Queen Wash and veer northwest over undulating terrain. 

Vector Rock is easily seen from this point but not easily accessed because of the large boulders and vegetation encountered along the way. 

  • The distance from the Bond Boulders to Vector Rock is approx. 1/2 mile and the approach takes roughly 30 minutes.
